CID Consulting was founded by Laila Iskander and Dalia Wahba in 1995 in Cairo, with a shared vision: to enable individuals, organisations and communities to grow and communicate more effectively.


“We have grown rapidly, but our founding purpose remains the same. We are a pioneering management consultancy firm, with an unwavering commitment to generating positive impact.” - Laila Iskandar

CID Consulting is internationally recognised for delivering diverse management and development consulting solutions for organisations in both the public and private sectors, helping them to grow and deliver positive social change.

Over the years, we found success by coupling our understanding of the local market with innovative service offerings across sectors. We evolved our team and collaborated with international partners to combine unrivalled local experience with global market knowledge.

Our wide-reaching portfolio of clients enabled important cross-sector synergies and a wide-reaching network across both the private sector and the realm of international development. We became a fully integrated consulting company combining seasoned experts with innovative services, delivering powerful results for our clients and their own communities.

Through the years, we forged invaluable networks and connections across new sectors which seeded the growth of our management consultancy in the fields of manufacturing, energy, technology, social entrepreneurship and workforce development.
